WWE has some big plans lined up for Jeff Hardy at this upcoming event.
The career of Hardy has been one with ups and downs. Hardy has worked for several promotions while in the pro wrestling business including the WWE, TNA, ROH and indies.
He got his start when he was a kid as he wrestled for Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts (OMEGA), which was created and ran by his brother Matt.
The Hardy’s worked as enhancement talents for the WWF from 1994 through 1998. This is when the sports entertainment company decided to sign them to full-time contracts where they would later become famous for their Tables, Ladders and Chairs matches.
They also started a stable alongside WWE Hall of Famer Lita known as "Team Xtreme" where they become a popular group.
Alongside Matt, Jeff won eleven world tag team championships between WWE, TNA and ROH.
Moving along to 2002, the sports entertainment company decided to split the team and they became singles stars where Jeff would go onto hold the Intercontinental Championship four times and the European Championship once.
He departed from WWE in 2003 where he would later go onto work for TNA until 2006 when he decided to go back to the WWE.
Moving along to 2008, he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship twice. After leaving WWE once again, he went back to TNA where he would become a World Champion three times.
By looking at the history books, Hardy is the 18th Triple Crown Champion and 9th Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
Jeff Hardy demanded his rematch against Shinsuke Nakamura on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live as Nakamura will defend the United States Championship against Hardy on this show. This comes off the heels of Nakamura beating Hardy in just six seconds after hitting a low blow and his finisher at Sunday’s (July 15, 2018) WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the PPG Paints Arena on the WWE Network Extreme Rules.
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Wilkes Barre, PA at the Mohegan Sun Arena on the USA Network, Hardy beat Nakamura by DQ in their title match after Orton attacked him and beat him down.
The SummerSlam pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, August 19, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured.
